• If the Accommodation (or any part of it) or any of the Host’s personal property is damaged during the stay, beyond reasonable wear and tear, the Guest must:
1. immediately notify the Host; and
2. will be liable in full for the cost of that damage.
The Guest confirms that if there is damage to the Accommodation or any of the Host’s personal property over and above fair wear and tear and/or if the Accommodation is heavily soiled so as to require, in the Host’s reasonable opinion, an industrial clean, then the Host may make appropriate deductions from the damage deposit.
• Within 14 days following termination of the occupancy term, Provider/Host agrees to return the damage deposit to Guest, adjusted for any damages and outstanding bills.
• The damage deposit shall be returned only after inspection by Provider/Host and Provider/Host determines that no damages, loss or injury (other than from reasonable wear and tear) has been done to the premises or property therein and that all charges, fees have been paid and contract provisions adhered to.

• We operate under an extended stay hotel model in that our rates are based on occupancy. We technically are an extended stay residential hotel facility and this format is part of our business model, which helps keep regular rates as low as possible. Monthly rates are discounted for single occupancy.
• The occupancy agreement for the Guest’s stay is based on a specific number of occupants.
• If after taking occupancy Guest expects an additional regular or temporary overnight visitor, please speak to the Provider/Host about making an adjustment to the agreement. Guests should keep in mind that the Provider/Host utilizes a hybrid version of the hotel model as far as Guest’s and charges based on occupancy. This as opposed to an open-ended apartment model, although even conventional rental apartment pricing is somewhat based on occupancy where maintenance and utility charges can get adjusted. As one might already be aware, it is more costly to us when additional persons stay at the house in terms of additional housekeeping, additional supplies such as bedding and towels, additional laundry service, utilities such as electricity and water, additional repairs and further wear and tear. Additionally, we endeavor to keep the occupancy for the house at a manageable level for a small residential house that will not put a strain on the plumbing infrastructure and noise levels in the building. We hope Guests understand this and this is pointed out in our literature, website and rental contract.
• The number of occupants as specified in the occupancy agreement must be adhered to.
• Only Guest’s in the original reservation whose IDs have been verified in advance may stay in the apartment.
• Unauthorized daytime or overnight visitors, any sublet, sublease or substitution of guest’s is strictly forbidden.
• Additional occupants are subject to a supplemental fee.
• Guests warrant that only individuals listed in the rental agreement can occupy the premises and that any individuals added after the effective date shall be subject to Host approval and to additional costs. Subject to designated occupancy limits for the suite we charge a monthly management, additional wear & tear and combined supplemental utilities & housekeeping charge for additional occupants. If you plan to have a temporary visitor, please discuss with host and request a cost estimate.
• Provided the occupancy maximum for the suite is not violated, we allow for a limited number of overnight guests over a limited period of time. In that we are not a hotel but more of a residential corporate housing extended stay character which has many commonalities with long term leases we wish to advise that if you are considering more than 1 or 2 guests over an approx. 4-8 week period that our facility is not designed for that and we would request you give other places consideration. All overnight guests must be pre-approved and restricted to the numbers mentioned. Our typical clientele consists of adult travelers who appreciate a quieter environment. As such, we are not the best fit for guests who enjoy entertaining or having friends over. We value all of our guests and strive to provide a comfortable and enjoyable experience for everyone, so we want to make sure that we are upfront about our policies and atmosphere to avoid any potential misunderstandings.
• The primary guest of the premises may host an overnight visitor provided the maximum occupancy limit is not violated.

• Interim/Intermittent cleaning (monthly or as agreed upon in advance) & linen service. Please confirm frequency of service included with your reservation prior to booking. Cleaning fees assume that guests have maintained the apartment in good condition throughout the stay.
• Exit Cleaning
• a/c (June, July, August, September & October)
• Bedding: The following bedding is included: mattress pad, sheet set including a top and bottom sheet, pillow case protectors, pillow cases, cotton blanket (seasonal), down blanket with duvet cover (seasonal), 2 down pillows per person and multiple towels. A bed skirt is provided on some beds.
• Occupancy Tax: Much like hotel, motel, and B&B stays, short-term rentals (less than 180 days) in New York State are subject to tax. Tax authorities expect short-term vacation rental hosts to collect short-term rental taxes from their guests and remit them to the proper authorities. We collect NYS Tax for all stays.
• NY city hotel occupancy tax 5.875%
• NY city hotel tax $2.00 / room / night
• A rental home may have more than one room. The tax will be $2.00 per room per day on each of the rooms that make up the home plus the hotel room occupancy tax for the entire home rental. (For example: The tax on a home with 4 rooms is $8.00 per day plus the hotel room occupancy tax for the entire suite rental). New York City defines a room as “Any room of any kind, other than a bathroom or lavatory, in any part or portion of a hotel/home which is available for, or let out for, use or possession for any purpose other than a place of assembly.” A kitchen or kitchenette is considered to be 1 room. Thus a studio with a kitchen or kitchenette is considered to be 2 rooms for tax calculation purposes.

• No tax is due from guests who are considered to be permanent residents.
• To be considered a permanent resident of New York State, a guest must stay for at least 180 consecutive days without interruption (see also below information).
• To be exempt from all taxes, the occupant must have a signed agreement with the term exceeding 179 consecutive days. If the occupant does not complete 180 days of continuous occupancy, any taxes not previously collected become immediately due and payable (see below).Technically, a person who enters into an agreement for occupancy for 180 consecutive days or more does not become a “permanent resident” under the law until he/she has been an occupant for 180 consecutive days, and the operator is liable for the collection of the tax until that occupancy for 180 consecutive days has been completed.
• However, an occupant can obtain permanent resident status prior to completing 180 days of consecutive occupancy by requesting a lease from the hotel operator.
• Where the occupant has requested such a lease, the hotel operator should not collect the tax for any day, starting on the date the lease was requested, that falls within a period of continuous occupancy by the occupant.
• However, if the occupant does not complete 180 days of continuous occupancy, any taxes not previously collected become immediately due and payable and are to be collected by the hotel operator.

• Guests are asked to keep in mind that the making of the beds is one of the housekeeper’s most time consuming tasks.
• If the apartment has been booked for single occupancy and the suite is furnished with multiple beds, regular housekeeping shall be limited to one bed.
• Beds not in use will be made with a cover sheet.
• Guests need to coordinate which beds will be utilized during their stay with the Provider/Host's housekeeping staff.

Pets of any variety are not permitted on premises.

Smoke-Free Building

(ii) impose a charge of $250 for each written notice of said breach or violation of this Smoking and E-Smoking prohibition that is given by counsel engaged by Host in order to reimburse Host for the legal expenses incurred, which shall constitute liquidated or agreed upon damages incurred by Host in connection with such notice.
(iii)reimburse the Host for any fees and expenses (including legal, professional and otherwise) incurred to remedy the infiltration of the Smoking and E-Smoking into the public areas of the Residential Unit or another apartment, or to otherwise enforce the provision of this Smoking and E-Smoking prohibition, and/or to terminate the Guest's contract.
